Virtual Sámi Film Festival: Panel Discussion
Nov 07, 2020
11:00am - 12:00pm PST

This November, the 3rd Annual Sámi Film Festival explores Sámi values, visions, and stories, through a series of short films and documentaries from Sápmi, which today encompasses large northern parts of Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Russia. On Saturday, November 7, join us for a panel discussion with Sámi filmmakers and scholars as they delve into Sámi film! Filmmakers Rebecca King, Elle Sofe Sara, and Silja Somby, and Sámi scholar Dr. Troy Storfjell (Professor of Nordic Studies, Pacific Lutheran University) will discuss Sámi values, vision, and stories — and why they're able to speak to diverse audiences.

The panel will be moderated by Dr. Amanda Doxtater (Assistant Professor, Scandinavian Department, University of Washington), and will take place as a Zoom webinar. Questions can be sent to info@amscan.org in advance of the conversation, or asked via chat during the panel.

This year's Sámi Film Festival is presented a partnership between The National Nordic Museum in Seattle and Scandinavia House in New York, with support provided by the Consulate General of Finland in New York, The Embassy of Finland, Royal Norwegian Consulate General in New York, The Consulate General of Sweden in New York and institutional support provided by the Pacific Sámi Searvi and International Sámi Film Institute.

This talk is in connection with our Virtual Sámi Film Festival, with films viewable November 5–8. 

Cost: Free; RSVP required. Sign up for the Zoom lecture via Scandinavia House's link here
